Sony SRS-XB13 Bluetooth speaker launched in India
Sony has chosen World Music Day to launch its affordable SRS-XB13 portable wireless Bluetooth speaker in India at a price tag of Rs 3,990. It’s now up on sale via all major online and offline retailers, including Flipkart, Amazon and Sony Center stores.
The Sony SRS-XB13 belongs to the Japanese brand’s popular ‘Extra Bass’ series of products which also include certain headphones and earphones. It has a rated frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz and comes with a single 46mm driver.
The speaker has a claimed battery life of up to 16 hours and it recharges via a USB-C port.
Surprisingly, the speaker uses the rather dated Bluetooth 4.2 for connectivity. But, SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs are supported. Along with this, it also supports Google Fast Pair which should make its connectivity with Android devices quite seamless.
The Sony SRS-XB13 is also pretty rugged thanks to its IP67 dust and water resistance. It also features a multiway strap so that you can hang it on your backpack. It’s available in 6 colour options – Black, Pink, Yellow, Taupe, Powder Blue and Light Blue.
